Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler

Dan, the kids and I just got back from a camping trip to Zions National Park.  It was still quite cold but we had a blast.  Since camping season is not too far out in the future, I thought that I would do a section on great camping recipes that we tried on our trip.  This is by far our favorite dessert to have out camping.  I hope you enjoy!


2 large cans of peaches, (I use bottled peaches that I can in the summer)
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 cube of butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 TBS of cinnamon


Make sure your campfire has plenty of hot coals. These are important for proper baking.

Coat the inside of your dutch oven with cooking oil. This helps prevent the cobbler from sticking and will greatly help you when serving.

Pour the entire contents of the can (peaches and juice) into the dutch oven.
Dump the cake mix on top of the peaches.

Slice the butter into sections and put them on top of the cake mix.  Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.

Put the lid on and place over hot coals.  Place hot coals on top of the lid as well.

Let the cobbler bake for 35 to 45 minutes. Check to see if it is done by inserting a clean knife into its center. If the knife comes out clean, the cobbler is finished. If it does not come out clean, add more coals and wait 5 to 10 more minutes. Repeat until the cobbler is done.
